Is Perodua Kenari a good and reliable car?

 

Thinking of buying 1 used one.

 

Please advise.

My experience with Perodua cars (previously drove a Viva), the car itself is reliable and won’t give too much problems.

Biggest problem actually is how previous owners treat/abuse it.

Anyway with buying of second hand cars, better to send it to a trusted Mechanic to check through everything and change whatever needs to be changed after buying it.

So factor that into your purchasing cost and negotiation.

My previous Viva cost 1.2k to almost overhaul the engine. Did it in Malaysia. If in Singapore the cost probably gonna be at least x2 already.

Maintenance cost will be lower if done up north. I believe will be even lower cause its local brand.

Find maybe Hyundai Avante or some car like that.
This car isn’t that cheap either, and is a 1990s car.
Isn’t comfortable either.

Reliable? Probably. It's after all a MY assembled Daihatsu Move. 

 

Good or not is very subjective  [laugh]

 

It's probably a simple and easy car to drive and maintain. I like the tall headroom. But you might consider the safety aspects of this car. 

 

I still see one or 2 running around once in a while

The Kenari shares the same Daihatsu sourced engine as the Kelisa. Tested and proven hardy 999cc, 3 cylinder engine with no complicated electronics. *Toyota owns Daihatsu

 

You can get a used one for $5K and spend $41k to renew COE for 10 years. Add another $4K to replace wear and tear plars (reasonably priced in S'pore and very cheap in M'sia) and for $50K grand, you have a reliable car to drive for 10 years and $5K annual dep .

 

As annual rd tax is low to begin with, the 50% surcharge ($195) does not hurt. The $585 in annual rd tax with 50% surcharge is similar to that of a 1300cc car. 3rd party insurance with 50% NCD costs no more than $500 a year.

 

Spacious and sits 5 mid sized adults comfortably.
